“We had to come up with our ways of replicating the sort of pushing we need to do Stephens, a reported British resident since age 11, said, according to Reuters. So that’s why we thought: why not go out and push the car?”
We do get some funny looks. We’ve had people run over, thinking the car’s broken down, trying to help us bump-start the car. When we tell them we’re the Jamaica bobsleigh team, the direction is different, and they’re very excited.
The Jamaican bobsled side rose to fame with its Olympic debut at the 1988 Calgary Winter Games, inspirational the 1993 Disney film, “Cool Running’s.” At least one Jamaican men’s sled contested in every Olympics from 1988 through 2002, then again in 2014, with the best finish of 14th.
A Jamaican women’s bobsled debuted at the Olympics in 2018, driven by 2014 U.S. Olympian Jazmine Fenlator-Victorian. A Jamaican men’s sled just missed qualifying for PyeongChang by one spot in world rankings. Stephens, a motorist, is 51st and 56th in the current world positions for the four-person and two-man proceedings, correspondingly.
He competed in lower-level international races last season with the best finish of sixth in a four-person race that had seven sleds. One of Stephens’ push athletes was Carrie Russell, a 2018 Olympian in the two-woman occasion and former runner who won a world title in the 4x100m in 2013.
